This cool set of cards features the work of French painter and sculptor Jean du Buffet (1901-1985) whose idealistic approach to aesthetics embraced the concept of "low art" (aka Brut Art), forsaking the traditional standards of beauty for a more authentic and human approach to art. Each card shows an abstract representation of more or less concrete objects, persons, or other elements. 

Includes a card with a list of all images, with their French name translated to English. Includes box. Prints are only in blue, black, white and red.

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
